Restaurant Review: San Francisco, California

Birba


Delightfully quirky, Angela Valgiusti’s wine bar is about the size of a small living room—at lunch, you might end up elbow to elbow with a wine rep showing their wares. You won’t find the usual suspects here, but rather things like sparkling pineau d’Aunis from the Loire, Béla Fekete’s volcanic whites from Somló in Hungary and six vermouths by the glass to go along with the charcuterie and olives and a soundtrack that veers from Beyoncé to salsa.
